This migraine was so strong it has a gravitational pull






I had a migraine yesterday and it was a brutal one. A day where I could take a triptan so I did. The pain went down a little bit so I mucked about on the computer to distract myself.

This migraine had a gravitational pull I felt it come back pulling me closer and closer to that black hole of imploding brain pain. Later in the evening it came back full speed ahead. Yet sharper. There was the same throbbing pain. Same eye pain. Same neck pain.  And a very intense migraine aura of waves of scintillations. With vertigo and balance problems. And yes as I was pulled int deeper and deeper and it began to crush me I got this sharp stabing, arching pain on both sides of the head, that were too frequent fro comfort.



I went to bed. Lay down and... stab.. stab... stab. My head disagreed with the softness of my pillow. I lay there, changed positions, lay there again, changed positions. No position was better for this acute 9 level hellish pain.

Needless to say no sleep. I got to sleep though... at 9 am.

Today I got up at 4 pm. It was a restless uncomfortable sleep. And the migraines was still going but the pain was knocked down to an 8. Where it has stayed all day long because I cannot take another triptan. I have not changed out of my pjs. I didn't cook supper... didn't even finish eating it. Nausea is an issue today. Weird thing is when I work up I felt so sick. My lefts felt weak, trembled... like I could barely stand on them. And my entire less and my hands tingled all day. I don't know what that is about. But I'm tired. Two bad pain days... slightly fatigued.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 



I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
